Film description

In this plotless film Tsai Ming-Liang compares different motifs and situations which serve as a commentary for each other. A man in a trance caused by ritual dancing is replaced by half-naked girls writhing in erotic postures to kitschy music. Dead and dying fish washed ashore, contaminated water, empty industrial spaces, a woman trying to ward off bad spirits. These seemingly unconnected images combine into a disturbing reflection on coexistence of spirituality and liflessness, eroticism and dehumanisation. This is neither a documentary nor a nightmarish vision, this is a project, an open statement. The director himself said about his work: I decided to use the most basic and simple way of filming. This changed the way I saw things. Filming the underground passage, I didn't consider it to be filming but rather using the camera as my eyes...

Night and the City by Jules Dassin was specifically selected for the ENH festival by Almodóvar. This film inspired the Spanish master during his work on Broken Embraces (Los abrazos rotos).
